2010 was an AMAZING year for me. I was utterly depressed at the start of the year, partly because of the life choices I made required me to go down in order to go up.
To start, I got LASIK surgery and I now have 20/20 (or close to it) vision.
12 countries. 3 continents. And I have no idea what my total mileage count is.
Excluding Canada, the other 11 countries that I visited were: Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, S. Korea, Taiwan, United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Mexico, and the United States.
I have a lot of photos, but I've chosen one from each country to represent my visit.

Here's also a few group shots with my buddies on our Europe trip.

I am truly in awe at how I was able to travel. I am filled with wanderlust and it is my passion to experience the world. Taste different foods, experience different cultures, meet interesting people. =)
Although it's unlikely I will be able to visit 10 countries again in a year, I remain hopeful that I'll still be able to keep travelling this year and in the future.
The countries that are on the top of my list to visit:
Most wanted destinations
-Singapore (MegaZip + Sentosa!)
-Thailand (Night market food + watching some Muay Thai in Lumpini Stadium)
-Japan (Food + Shibuya + Everything)
-Iceland (Hot Dog + Shark + Skyr + Nature)
-Italy (Pasta + Architecture)
